Leeds Pride 2017 will take place on the Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August so make sure you save the dates!
The main event on the Sunday will start with 2 hours of entertainment in Millennium Square, followed by a parade through the city centre with over 60 floats and 5 hours of entertainment on Lower Briggate to finish off an incredible weekend.
Leeds Pride is Yorkshire’s biggest celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* life. Running since 2006 and is now the largest Pride in the UK to still be a completely free event with over 40,000 people attending over the weekend. It is also considered the UK’s friendliest Pride. The celebrations are run by a skilled team of volunteers with close links to local Leeds LGB&T community and the event is funded through community fundraising, grant funding and sponsorship agreements with national brands such as First Direct, Sainsbury’s and ASDA.
Over the Leeds Pride weekend there will be a whole host of events celebrating love, equality, sexuality and gender identity across the city. This is the 11th year that Leeds Pride has taken place and it undoubtedly makes a huge contribution to the local economy with thousands of people choosing to visit the city on Leeds Pride weekend.
All over the city! The fun all starts at the Millennium Square Stage on the Sunday and the parade then heads through Leeds before ending up on Lower Briggate for a massive party to round off a wonderful day.
Leeds Pride 2017 is back Saturday 5th and 6th August 2017!
